This is a great beach for families or people who want to just hang on the beach. There are a lot of rocks in the area and many choose to snorkle here, so you can imagine how it is not ideal for playing in the waves and/or boogie boarding. Interestingly enough, we visited the beach on our first day in Kauai and had a precious monk seal "beach" itself right by us! This is truly a unique sight. There were also many giant sea turtles playing in the waves right where we were sitting. This is a good beach for families.
